HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – WHNT News 19 wants to help provide ‘Tools for Teachers’ to keep the kids in Alabama engaged and educated while stuck at home.

This week’s Tools for Teachers highlights the online libraries at local colleges and universities in North Alabama that can help students and parents make sense of assignments.

The schools have plenty of online resources to help make homeschooling for Alabamians a little easier.

Sheila Snow-Croft, the Director of the Network of Alabama Academic Libraries, or NAAL, says “our resources are invaluable and they’re mostly online.”

NAAL has 28 member institutions which includes 5 schools in North Alabama –

“The schools have online library guides, or LibGuides, with resources for just about everyone.”

The Alabama Virtual Library features free access to educational sources for people of all ages.

Much like the regular library, you can get a librarian’s help on the Alabama virtual library site and most of the schools’ websites.   

NOTE: These resources are only free to Alabama citizens.

WHNT News 19 wants to hear from parents and teachers! Let us know how the switch is going for you.
